Many things have changed in the Isle of Berk since the “Dragon Invasion” that occurred during the first film. Now, dragons happily occupy the space along with their human masters in How to Train Your Dragon 2, the cinematic sequel. And for some long time fans, this set up is exactly in how the books originally envisioned this world.
That includes some games with sheep being the … well, scapegoat. Well, not quite. But these dragons certainly love teasing the always humbling and hilarious sheep. Some may tell these animals not to lose their wool over it.
This new video clip release comes courtesy of Yahoo Movies. It shows what looks like the first five minutes of the movie, along with all the necessary set-ups in character introductions to get viewers up to speed. Snotlout still has a “thing” for Astrid, but has he started to take a liking to Ruffnut too? Fishlegs is dedicated to his adoring female Dragon companion, and he looks like he will become a capable second in command when the leadership of the island changes, and Stoick the Great and Gobber retires.
But where is Hiccup? This movie looks like it will be about making new discoveries on all kinds of fronts. Not only for this lead hero but also for everyone else. As everyone are now in their teenage years, what happens next will no doubt start to define them in their young adult years. Everyone is growing up. It looks like some may want to leave the nest, and that’s not good for Berk’s fate.
